Hello I'm new to the forums and I wanted to get your guys opinion on my situation. Yesterday during a football game I got a blow to the outside of my right knee and it made it buckle in. Whenever I put pressure on it now it gives out or slips to the inside and while even barely standing it seems I can pop it in and out of place with little effort but alot of pain. It starting to swell so I have kept icing it and keeping it elevated but the swelling continues to grow but there are no signs of brusing yet. The swelling is on the inside of my right knee and goes down past the knee cap level. No one seems to be alarmed and I haven't been taken to the doctors yet so could it maybe be just a sprain of my MCL? Tell me what you guys think. Thanks

  • sounds like that could be it, or a partial tear, but it's also possible that it's completely torn.. Was there severe immediate pain, and then it subsided a little?

Thanks I tore my acl and had no pain when it first happened, but it swelled immediately and when it would pop it would hurt so bad, I would go get an MRI

  • I tore my acl and had no pain when it first happened, but it swelled immediately and when it would pop it would hurt so bad, I would go get an MRI About Six Moths Ago I Had a Similar issue while Performing Martial Arts and Where My Knee Popped out but, i Had Very little Pain and it was for just a few minutes, but would continue to have it give out or get weak at Any sudden Turn or Twist.I Don't have insurance,and Since it was NOT an Emergency i let it Heal on it's own and it seems to have Recovered for the most part.But if you have Trouble and have Insurance i would get it Checked out ,but i would be Careful if they want to do surgery.I personally don't like the Thought of that.Good Luck.
